An impressive trailer and 6 new screenshots.

It's just a few days before the long-awaited start of the 32nd America's Cup, one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, and 93 Games and Ascaron are pleased to release the first official trailer of the latest version of its Virtual Skipper games - now known as 32nd America' s Cup - The Game. Even if you're water-phobic, it's worth taking a look at this exciting new video that shows match races between the competition's official boats on an ultra-realistic modelled and perfectly animated sea. No other computer game ever created shows such a detailed and realistic ocean, no matter the time of day or the weather.

Some of the great contenders for this year's America's Cup Trophy include: Alinghi, BMW Oracle, Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa. Starting next week, the struggle between the challengers in Valencia, Spain will engross the entire world. In July, the winner of these early races will face the Swiss boat Alinghi, the current holder of the trophy, in a thrilling final.

Along with the new video, we've released several new screenshots to help get gamers excited for the game, and the start of the real-world event.
